This is hypothetical, should the Netflix petition succeed, then the rest of the planet will learn of my favorite Starwars hero, Revan. And this makes me excited.
Revan is both hero and villain in the Old Republic. A revered general who led the Jedi into action against the Mandalorian threat. Although within the Jedi order, the masters themselves, detest Revan for doing so, fearing a much larger threat was at work (which in the end proved to be true). Nonetheless the republic under attack was thankful for Revan’s heroic exploit, inactivity to him is nonesense because the republic will suffer if nobody does the dirty work. Leading the Revanchist movement in defiance of the Jedi Council’s wishes, and taking on the name of Revan, the Knight donned the mask of a fallen Mandalorian as he joined the Republic Military’s fight and was appointed Supreme Commander.
After defeating the Mandalorian leader, Mandalore the ultimate, Revan with best friend and follower Alek, ventured into the Outer Rim of known space to find the greater threat. When they came back they were no longer Jedi knights but bonafide Sith Lords.
And this is what sets Darth-Revan apart from other entities in the Star Wars lore. He even has a book dedicated solely to him. Written solely for him by Drew Karpyshyn.
The Synopsis goes:
Revan: hero, traitor, conqueror, villain, savior. A Jedi who left Coruscant to defeat Mandalorians and returned a disciple of the dark side, bent on destroying the Republic. The Jedi Council gave him his life back, but the price of redemption was high. His memories have been erased. All that’s left are nightmares and deep, abiding fear.
What exactly happened beyond the Outer Rim? Revan can’t quite remember, yet can’t entirely forget. Somehow he stumbled across a terrible secret that threatens the very existence of the Republic. With no idea what it is, or how to stop it, Revan may very well fail, for he’s never faced a more powerful and diabolic enemy. But only death can stop him from trying.
So, are you excited for Revan in Netflix as me? Go sign this petition now!
